Easy Tofurkey Cheesesteak

Tuesday, November 9, 2010

I totally stole this idea.  One of Eugene's best food carts is just a few blocks away.  Viva Vegetarian sells
Tofurkey hot dogs and shredded BBQ sandwiches and Tempeh Reubens . . . AND CHEESESTEAKS!!! The Tofurkey is thinky sliced and tender, like I'd never made myself. After a few trials (tasty trials), I came up with my own version. Definitely an idea worth stealing.


Easy Tofurkey Cheesesteaks
1 package Tofurkey Kielbasa (4 Sausages)
1 tbs vegetable oil
1 medium onion, halved and sliced
1 bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup water
2 tbs nutritional yeast
1/2 small lemon, juiced
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tbs vegan Worcestershire sauce
6 hoagie rolls

Take each sausage and cut in half length-wise, then width-wise. Cut each quarter into thin slices. Set aside. Heat the oil in a saute pan set to medium-high. Saute the onions and green pepper until the onions begin to brown. Stir in the Tofurkey and saute for a couple minutes, until warm. Stir toghether the water, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, paprika and vegan Worcestershire sauce. Pour into the saute pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5-10 minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed. Divide amongst six toasted hoagie rolls and serve.
